    Exclusive Ski Performance Training Weeks
    with Alex Leaf...

    Develop your skiing performance to achieve your full potential. This training week is suited to more advanced skiers, or for those working towards a BASI level 1 instructor course, or moving forward to a BASI Level 2 Course.

    Redpoint have teamed up with World Class Skiing again this year to provide a travel & accommodation package to match their instructor preparation weeks in Hintertux.

    The Training with World Class Skiing:  Ideal for the aspirant BASI ski teacher or those who have already taken ski teacher courses and wish to develop their skiing further.  Working on your performance and ensuring you have the right skills to present yourself for a BASI ski teacher course. Our courses are delivered by BASI trainers, who will have the necessary skill set and observational abilities to identify areas requiring further development.  If however, you are not looking at attending such a BASI course and wish to further develop your personal ski performance then the week will contain all the skills and techniques to improve your own skiing.

    The Package with Redpoint:  The week is based in the lovely Austrian resort of Hintertux, with the ski lifts to the Hintertux Glacier conveniently located next to the hotel.  Accommodation is at the four star Hotel Rindererhof and includes buffet breakfasts, four course evening meals as well as an afternoon snack and use of the hotel’s sauna, steam and relaxation areas.

    The ski pass gives access to the varied ski areas in the Ziller Valley.  With over 670km of pistes and 12 different ski areas included on one lift pass, the Ziller Valley has many well-known ski areas including Hochfugen, Hochzillertal, Zell (the Zillertal Arena), Mayrhofen and the Hintertux Glacier.

    The package also includes return transfers to and from Munich airport and we can quote you for flights to Munich on request – simply let us know your preferred departure airport.  (If you plan to book your own flights, please double-check the timings of the transfers with us first).

    FAQ's
    Frequently Asked Questions
    How many people will be in the Group?
    There is one Trainer per group of 8 - 10 people per week.
    Am I a good enough skier to join the guiding?
    Participants should be of an Advanced level. Skiers would be at the standard where they would be able to start on becoming a ski instructor or above. You may already be a L1 instructor and want to prepare for the L2 BASI courses in the Hintertux in the spring.
    What happens if I can't keep up with the group because of my ski ability?
    Due to the small size of the group and the experience of the trainer a difference of standard will not be a big problem. You need to be a parallel skier that can cope with Black runs and would be happy to have a go in variable conditions.
    What if the Trainer decides my skiing is not to the required level?
    In the unlikely event that you or your trainer consider that your skiing is not of a standard to keep up with the Group, or you feel under too much pressure then there may be alternative instruction available with Redpoints own English BASI qualified instructors.
    I am a beginner; can I still book this holiday?
    If you are a beginner or less experienced skier, you should look at Redpoints other instruction options as this course is for Advanced level skiers.
    What Qualification does our trainer have?
    The World Class Sking trainers have the BASI ISTD Level 4 qualification and are Alpine Trainers (Trains Ski instructors).
    What can we expect from the course?
    The course will provide training to develop your skiing skills so you can better cope with a variety of slopes and conditions. Specific technical training is always included to improve the way in which you ski not only with this goal in mind but also to allow you to become a more versatile skier.
